Airplanes ARE back in the air….
I live near an airport and I can hear them flying…..
The Federal Aviation Administration lifted an order to ground all flights across the United States shortly before 9 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday after a system failure left pilots, airlines and airports without crucial safety information for hours. The agency said that“normal air traffic operations are resuming gradually across the U.S.”
Here’s what to know:
More than 5,000 flights within, into or out of the United States had been delayed on Wednesday, according to FlightAware, a flight tracking service. The delays were spread across the country and affected multiple carriers.
Passengers across the country said their plans had been scuttled, with airport employees sometimes knowing little more than passengers.
President Biden said that he had spoken with Pete Buttigieg, the transportation secretary, and that he had asked him to report back when a cause for the failure had been identified. There was no evidence of a cyberattack, the White House said.
